Electric Trike at Night
Wow an orange almost full moon tonight on the way to show the E-trike to some ladies helping the city of Puerto Princesa with the integrated toursim program in town. Nice easy ride with the sexy blue glow of the LED lights Dave Dewbre, electric vehicle specialist and consultant, had installed on the bottom edge and window inside the passenger cabin. Beautiful cool night air. A lovely evening indeed.
I especially loved it when Merle and Celia boarded and Dave took off from their hotel with not even the sound of whooosh. It was the intake and exhale of their own breaths of surprise, delight and awe when the vehicle took off and not a sound was heard but their own gasps of pleasure and glee.
We all felt like Queens driving around with the looks from the bystanders and people we passed in the streets!
It was Dave's idea to add the cool blue lights on the interior and bottom rim of the E-trike. The lights make the vehicle very visible at night. He even found some cool lights that use the wind to generate twinking lights on the front of the E trike to give it even more visibility while running at night, but no drain on the batteries.
